On The Effect of Antenna Height On the Characterization of The Indoor UWB Channel
Ultra-WideBand (UWB) technology is being proposed for several short range wireless applications. Some of the applications, such as position location devices for rescue personnel, may require the antenna height to be close to the ground. In scenarios where the antenna height is very low (from 0 to 30 cm), propagation characteristics and channel modeling are needed to provide important insights for the application design. This paper presents time-domain measurements and channel characterization of the indoor UWB channel at three different antenna heights (7.5 cm, 26.5 cm, and 108.5 cm).
